Projects waiting

I have lots and lots of projects lined up ready to do...

Bought these 2 pillows (cheap!) at Ross. They are a nice size. I plan on recovering them perhaps with a drop cloth or other rustic fabric and putting cute sayings on them..

They're rather, um, unique right now but that's probably why they were cheap - ha!

This tray for the coffee station - it will sit behind the little toolbox to hide the power cords ( I'm using a plate right now but need it back - ha! ) - trying to decide if I want to put chalkboard paint on it or a really cool design...

It's pretty ugly right now. Can't wait to transform it!

This cute arch with metal scroll needs a new paint job...

hm, maybe a blue to go with the guest bedroom...

This terra cotta angel - I plan on putting a white crackle finish on her...

And these "suitcase" boxes...I want to decoupage maps on at least one of them. I think they will make cute accent storage pieces...

I know the shoe design is cute but they are more beat up than the picture shows and really not my style. I like them because they look like old suitcases.

Time for me to get busy and get some of these done before the next farm visit! I'm also working on my next painting - a covered bridge. It's from a photo I took on our Leaf Trip a couple of years back. It's coming along nicely. Hopefully it will work above the fireplace. We'll see! I will share my project progress next week.

What are you working on?

Happy thoughts,

I found this beauty on my climbing rose bush...It won't be long and it will be covered in blooms! Ah, it smells fabulous! How I love Spring!


  1. You are so creative! I love watching your projects unfold. I can't wait to see the finished product - you'd best get busy ;-)

    1. hee, I've been procrastinating...that's way there's a post on what I have to do instead of what I've done. lol

    2. why not way...oh goodness, maybe I'd better go to bed. :o)

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
